A new idea for a large substation based in Clovis, New Mexico has the potential to solve one of the biggest hurdles to clean energy growth: transmission. The SuperStation, as its being called, would link the three largest grids - the east, west and click here cialis pfizer india Texas - allowing renewable energy producers to viagra overnight mail sell electricity across the tramadol 10mg country instead of just within their own grid.
The basic setup of the SuperStation would be a huge substation using superconducting cables to transmit electricity. The cables would carry 5 GW of electricity to and from the substation where it would be converted from AC from the grids to DC and then back to AC on its way back out. The cables are chilled to 300 degrees below zero which lets them carry more electricity, more cheaply. Tres Amigas, the company that hopes to build the project, would charge a fee for the buy real levitra online SuperStation's use.
As more renewable energy projects are planned and built, it's infrastructure like this that will ultimately allow that clean electricity to make it into our homes. This project is expected to canadian pharmacies for viagra encounter lots of red tape because of where can i buy cialis the heavy regulation of power transmission, and it comes with a $1 billion price tag, so, for now, we can only hope it makes it.
